A funny furoshiki inspired by an important element of Japanese folklore: Setsubun. In the background we see two onis, ogres made popular in Japanese arts, literature or theatre. The scene represents their escape because they are afraid of the soybeans that the inhabitants of the house throw at them, a practice associated with the celebration of Setsubun. There are two masks in the upper left corner, one of an oni and the other of Otafuku, goddess of happiness.
Here is a video that shows the seed throwing during the Setsubun festival:
